TONIGHT! Join the League of Women Voters on Wednesday, August 19th, at 5:00 pm for a Conversation with Minnesota Secretary of State Steve Simon. The conversation will be streaming live on their Facebook Facebook page.
Secretary Simon will present the latest on voting in the general election on November 3rd and will answer questions from viewers. If you would like to submit a question, please email email@example.com.
Also, are you looking for opportunities to join us in engaging and educating voters?
During the COVID pandemic we’re learning and using new tools to reach voters who need our support. All voices matter; all voters count. We are working to develop and implement a number of voter education and engagement strategies. We have instituted safety measures for any on-site events, are looking to add drive-through registration opportunities soon, offering yard signs to promote voting, and more.
If you would like to help register voters we ask that you take a Voter Registration Training. Our online webinar will provide you with the statutory framework and the myriad accommodations for specific voting situations. Voter advocacy and access are the core of our mission.
For this online format, we ask you to register. Sessions are limited in the number of participants, so sign up today! Tell us all of the dates that can work for you, and we will register you for the first date available. Once you have registered, you will receive the link for the training. Two days before the training you will receive background materials and the link again.
